“Another web design firm said they would design a ‘Flash’ website for me. Will you do that?”
It’s a frequent question. The answer is Continue reading
I’m often asked, “Is it really hard to start a website?”
I’m also asked, “How much does it cost to put up a website?”
(These questions usually come from people who want me to tell them it’s really hard, and really expensive, so they will have an excuse not to do it.)
They’re easy questions. And the answer Continue reading

One of the most amazing developments of recent years on the internet is the content mamagement system (CMS).
A CMS is software that’s located on your website’s server, the computer that holds your web pages and serves them to internet users (your visitors or guests). The CMS is tied into a database on your server, and it provides several advantages over the typical website design:
- Once it’s installed and designed, good CMS software is easy to use for content management, not requiring special software installed on your home or office computer.
- You can post changes from any internet-connected computer, anywhere, without special software.
- Some of the best CMS software is free. It’s one of the amazing things about the internet.
- Search engines tend to scan your pages more often (because content changes often), and rank them higher.
- The best CMS software includes blogging features, and automatically notifies search engines when updates have been made.
- In many cases, you can run an entire website with CMS software, adding stories, creating pages, sorting your stories into categories.
- Starting a new website is easy. After installing and configuring your blog system, you post a story, and your website is live with that one story. Then, the next day, you add another story. Each new story is added to the system.
I like WordPress software. WordPress is a state-of-the-art personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.
You can install it yourself on your own website, if you’re so inclined. Then you can have a designer modify the theme to your liking, and add other tools like surveys, forums, directories, etc. Or, you may choose to have a designer set it up from the start. They you take over.
